‘Yuva Scheme’ to guide young writers

Recently, the Department of Higher Education under the Ministry of Education has launched Yuva Scheme – Pradhan Mantri Yojana (Young, Upcoming and Versatile Authors – 2021) to train young writers.

The scheme has been started as a program to train young and budding writers, guide young writers, and author mentorship programs.

Key Points:

  • The launch of Yuva Scheme (Young, Upcoming and Versatile Writer) is in line with the Prime Minister’s vision of encouraging young writers to write about India’s freedom struggle.
  • Yuva is a part of the INDIA@ 75 project (Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav), to bring forth the view of the younger generation of writers on oblivious legends, freedom fighters, unknown and forgotten places and their role in the national movement, and other topics.
  • The National Book Trust, India under the Ministry of Education of India, as the implementing agency will ensure the phase-wise execution of the scheme through well-defined phases of mentorship.
  • The books prepared under this scheme will be published by the National Book Trust, India; and to promote ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’, ensuring the exchange of culture and literature, the written books will also be translated into other Indian languages.

Other Important Info:

  • A total of 75 writers from all over the country are scheduled to be selected through the All India Competition to be held from 1 June to 31 July 2021 through https://www.mygov.in/.
  • The winners will be announced on 15 August Young writers will be trained by eminent writers/consultants. Under the mentorship, the manuscripts will be ready for publication by 15 December 2021, and the published books will be released on 12 January 2022 on the occasion of National Youth Day (Youth Day).
